You are ABSOLUTELY correct regarding Global Warming.
I want to thank you for your letter. I believe that when Al Gore lost the election, he disappeared, grew a beard, smoked some 'huge rudy's' and dreamt up this global warming stuff.
just wanted to say thanks for the Ace Cycle World Memories. My Dad worked in the
Parts department on Saturdays there when I was a Kid, and I would hang out now
and then, Spending my Saturdays poking around in the parts, Or taking mock
“Rides” on the parked bikes in the Warehouse, Or generally hanging about. My
Dad was good friends with all there, including Bob Van Skike, and Billy Von
Esser (My dad grew up with Billy) Your article brought back so many memories of
my “Mis-spent youth” hanging out at the Motorcycle Shop as we called it, And
I remember Basil, and the Salesmen, and Jack, and Pete Hashimoto, and just what
a cool place it was at the time. If you ever see Bob Van Skike or Billy Von
Esser, tell them Pete Skony’s son says Hello.

Yes, those were the great old days. I want to hear some more of the good stories from Ace Cycle World. Please mail them in. I am fortunate that I can hang around 4 & 6 Racing (now located in the Elk Grove Village Area). It is almost as much fun and a good number of folks that worked at Ace, worked at 4 & 6.

Keep Basil in your prayers as he continues to battle cancer. DS
Copies December 5, 2007
may remember me, I won some AMA/CCS Regionals in ‘91 and was wondering
if you had copies from that year and some from 1992 and 1993. If you could
e-mail me a list of what you have from those years it would be greatly
appreciated as I have no decent video at all from that part of my life. I would
love to show my friends and family. They never saw me race.
Yes, I remember you, that fast guy from Muskegon. I am putting together a list of shows from those years that I will e-mail to you. Check the television section of this website and look through the years. Some years I have better descriptions of the shows that other years. I hope to have the entire list done sometime this year. It is great to hear from you. Do you have any great stories from those years? photos? send them to me...........
